Kurzbeschreibung

Did you know that French women don't date?

American women have been missing out on a few secrets when it comes to the opposite sex. French women believe that the gift for attracting men has nothing to do with beauty, work, or even motivation. There are no Rules. And they don't listen to Dr. Phil's advice. They don't worry about the care and feeding of their boyfriend. And they certainly don't travel to Mars to communicate with men. On the contrary, French women's love lives are romantic, sensual, playful, and intense. They conduct their relationships with the same unique sense of originality and artfulness that they choose their clothes and accessories. For the first time ever, Jamie Cat Callan gives readers a personalized, guided tour through the corridors of French love.

Discover the secrets to:

  • Why French women always feel sexy

  • The French art of flirtation

  • Why French women walk everywhere and love to be seen

  • Where French women meet men

  • What French women do when their man misbehaves

Just as we've learned to stop torturing ourselves with fad diets and have relearned the art of eating, this witty, insightful, and candid book strives to show American women how to cultivate and enjoy the pleasures of love, romance, and marriage.

Includes delicious recipes for the perfect, amorous meal!

"Adorable!" --Erica Jong, New York Times bestselling author of Fear of Flying and Fear of Fifty

"Attention single ladies: here's a new way to meet men and drive them wild! Jamie Cat Callan reveals sexy French secrets for upping your confidence and attracting potential mates. Your inner goddess will rejoice--and so will your new boyfriend! Ooh la la!" --Bonnie Fuller, former CEO of American Media, former editor-in-chief of Star Magazine, and author of The Joys of Much Too Much: Go for the Big Life--The Great Career, The Perfect Guy, and Everything Else You've Ever Wanted

"No matter where you were born, every woman can now be a little bit French, thanks to this delightful book, French Women Don't Sleep Alone. Jamie Cat Callan helps women to look at their love lives and marriages with new eyes; love and marriage are not jobs but arts." --Nahid Rachlin, author of Persian Girls

"Entertaining and informative!" --Helena Firth Powell, author of All You Need To Be Impossibly French

1.0 von 5 Sternen Langweilig und enttäuschend 17. Juni 2009
Von Lilola
Format:Taschenbuch
Daß die Amis eine Schwäche für Französisches haben, ist bekannt. Auch deswegen wurde Mireille Guilianos Buch "French women don't get fat" dort ein großer Verkaufshit. Nun dachte sich Jamie Cat Callan: "Hey, ich hatte eine französische Oma, auch ich bin prädestiniert, ein Buch über französische Lebensart zu schreiben!" Welch eine Begründung!

Mag das Eröffnungskapitel, welches man teilweise bei Amazon lesen kann, noch ganz nett und interessant geschrieben sein, ist der Rest des Buches eine einzige Enttäuschung, welche sich ewig hinzieht. Das Buch handelt ausschließlich davon, wie Franzosen (nach Meinung einer Amerikanerin) Beziehungen führen, und das über 190 Seiten lang. Auch, wenn sie "unzählige" Interviews mit Franzosen geführt hat (die sie dann übersetzen ließ, weil Callan selber kein Französisch kann!!!), erscheint mir alles sehr an den Haaren herbeigezogen. Das einzige, was aus meiner europäisch-deutschen Sicht interessant war (was aber von der Autorin so garantiert nicht beabsichtigt war), ist ein erschreckender Einblick in die nordamerikanische Lebens- bzw. Liebensart. Sie ist z.B. der Meinung, Amerikanerinnen gehen in Plüschjogginganzügen aus dem Haus, weil sie eben mit dem Auto von Geschäft zu Geschäft fahren, und dieses Autos mittlerweile zum zweiten Haus der Amis geworden ist. Warum da noch hübsch (aus meiner Sicht eher normal) anziehen? Auch das hemmungslose Rummachen mit Typen aus der Clique und das anschließende Wundern, daß er es nicht ernst meint, ist anscheinend völlig normal da drüben. Das Buch ist mit ständigen "Oh, and...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fun and Fast Read With Great Life Tips 14. Juli 2009
Von Diana Faillace Von Behren - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Sometimes a book can just strike you at the right moment. That's the way it was for me when I picked up a copy of Jamie Cat Callan's "French Women Don't Sleep Alone." I started reading and finished within two hours. I smiled all the way through.

Unlike some of the other Francophile lifestyle books like "French Women Don't Get Fat" and "Entre Nous: A Woman's Guide to Finding Her Inner French Girl," "French Women Don't Sleep Alone" may masquerade as pure fun, but the tips accrued by Callan in her efforts to understand the mystique of her French grandmother can be utilized by American women who have spent too much time becoming empowered rivals to their male counterparts rather than real flesh and blood women and mean more to its reader than learning how to tie a scarf, wear a pencil skirt and heels, eat small bites and leave food on your plate.

Callan is so right when she simply restates what is as plain as the nez on your visage: Men and women are different. Well, duh . . . Well, serious duh! We are different, however, for the last forty years we have been trying to be the same. We burnt our bras - (I didn't--I need mine) and let down our guards by `being honest' and `telling it like it is' (yes, I have been guilty of this.) But to what avail? Has it done us any good? Are we more enlightened or do we just become extremely cynical, eat more ice cream and kvetsh about the ten pounds we have gained? We complain about our men and try to change them--make them into sensitive women! Yes, we do. We want to be included in and consulted on everything they do, but then we scream when we discover that we have trained them to do absolutely nothing. We've made it too easy.

Callan concentrates her study on the French woman, but I think her comments encompass most Europeans. American women want their men to understand them while European women relish the fact that they don't. The worlds of men and women are different. Why not enjoy ours and let them enjoy theirs? What are we afraid that we will miss? Nothing that we actually want.

Wisely, Callan comments on the overt sexuality and celebrity worshiping generations of younger women that show it all while wishing they were someone else. European women know how to dress--classic pieces paired with something eclectic--a show of leg, maybe some cleavage, but never both at once. Elegant yet fun. Jeans that fit right, not the ones that some superstar wore.

So what's the secret that French women know that has eluded us on the other side of the pond? Once we find our mates we expect to be joined at the hip. We give up all our mystery; recount little things that bore us let alone our men. Instead of developing that woman that our man fell in love with in the first place, we become complacent and lazy, expecting to be entertained rather than independently continuing to grow while on our own paths. We expect one path to encompass two people and that really doesn't make any sense at all.

If my comments have intrigued you, Callan's free and easy prose will delight you. Her insights make her an honorary candidate for the next Marianne. She will teach you not to date, that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, the power of keeping your life in tact through the coterie (your circle of friends) and most importantly, the escape to a secret garden.

Bottom line? Jamie Cat Callan's how-to on finding love, "French Women Don't Sleep Alone," is sure to please even the most disgruntled feminist. Fast, fun and insightful it comes highly recommended by this reviewer who spent a few hours in her own Jardin Secret while reading it. Oui, Oui!

1.0 von 5 Sternen This is a long magazine article, not a book. 4. März 2012
Von bartha - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I generally don't offer a review of a book unless I love it because I don't often care to critique an author's passion project. However in this case, I was sooooo annoyed - and embarrassed - at having spent any money on this book, that I had to say something.

I don't blame the author, I blame the publisher. This "book" is in desperate need of an editor... although had it been properly edited, there wouldn't have been enough content to warrant a book contract. The content contained in this book truly doesn't warrant publication in any form other than a magazine article at best. Really, it's probably better suited to a couple of blog posts.

The author is a woman who had a French grandmother...whom she didn't ever really know very well. She briefly lived in France for a few months in her youth, but left for England as soon as culture shock set in. She doesn't speak French, she's a thoroughly American francophile. What was it again that positions this author as an expert in the mating rituals of French women? Dating in France? Perhaps dating a French man? Oh, that's right -- she has just visited France, read about it, and asked a number of French strangers about their love lives...just like every other American francophile out there.

Please, PLEASE allow me to sum up this book so you don't waste your hard earned cash during a recession:
- Lead an interesting life
- Buy and use perfumes, creams, lotions and fragrant soaps & candles
- Buy and wear matching lingerie every day
- Have an interesting group of friends who you socialize with regularly
- Cook well

Et voilà!

1.0 von 5 Sternen There are better books on this topic 6. Mai 2009
Von Carol Sorgen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I have spent a lot of time in France, have many French friends, have dated French men, and have read all the comparable books on this topic, so I was really looking forward to reading this one. What a letdown. For starters, a good proofreader/editor/translator would have been helpful...way too many grammatical and spelling errors (in both English and French...surely *someone* should have caught that Blvd. St. Michel is not Blvd. St. Mitchel)! That aside, this was nothing but a retread of all the books that Callan quoted in her own book(true, she did give the other authors credit), and those were better written. And, while there definitely is a difference between how French and American women approach life and love, what this book doesn't address is that there's a difference between how French and American *men* approach life and love as well...while some (or even most, I would agree) of the author's suggestions certainly mirror my own attitude toward life and relationships, unfortunately, she doesn't take into account that what works in French society and in French relationships does not necessarily translate when dealing with American relationships (more's the pity, since I'm more of the French mindset myself!). I'd say if you want to read this book, get it from the library and save the money...at the very least, read the other books written on the topic. (One that wasn't mentioned that explores both the male and female perspective is "Women and Men: A Philosophical Conversation," by Francoise Giroud and Bernard-Henri Levy.)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sweet temptation 25. Oktober 2010
Von Maira Casseb Giosa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I'm not french nor american. I'm a brazilian reader and I have to admit that, following simple tricks, women could really make their lives much more light and pleasurable. I loved this book as much as Hooking Up or Holding Out! So light, so delicious and fun to read! It was a real pleasure to read and to be delighted with juicy tips for making me feel better about myself.

And you know what? It really works! Some boys have already noticed how "french" I looked, even though I have no french relatives. It's amazing what the power of a skirt allied with confidence can do. I'm already under its effects and, well, gotta tell you it feels great! Can't make dinner parties living with mom and dad, but I'm letting my inner french girl flow and show her faces, laces and flowers.

4.0 von 5 Sternen French Women Don't Date 24. Oktober 2010
Von Gemma Louise - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The title of this book is misleading. The name of the first chapter, French Women Don't Date, would be a better title. That's the reason for the four stars instead of five, because other than that it is a fascinating read, better than the little bit of entertaining fluff I was looking for. This is a study of the differences between how American and French men and women meet, date and interact. It's really interesting. How much more fun would it be to have a dinner party than to be stuck on one of those one-on-one interview-style dates where you sweat over who is going to pay?! I couldn't help think of the dating scene in the Sex and The City show. Carrie and the girls seem to pride themselves on the fact that they don't cook, as though it were a sign of empowerment. You only see them eating in restaurants or eating take-out at home. Carrie says, "I use my oven as storage." I think one of the only dinner party scenes is when Mikhail Barishnokov (sp?) cooks for Carrie and her friends, and he is a sometime resident of Paris! I am married and bought this book to keep the love alive and also because I find the cross-cultural differences between the French and Americans very interesting. I lived in Paris for two years, did some "non-dating," and was always puzzled by male/female relations there. Still am! And still delighted by them too! I recommend this book to anyone looking for a different approach to dating, and to anyone who is married looking for a different approach to marriage (although I do not recommend having an affair). Also recommend this book to those who just like to learn more about human relationships. Really anyone could read it and enjoy it.
